Team

Principle Investigator: Eellan Sivanesan, M.D. is Director of Neuromodulation, Assistant Professor, and a Clinician-Scientist at The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He treats patients with cancer, back, joint, facial, neuropathic, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), post-amputation, and complex pain conditions at the Blaustein Pain Treatment Center. He is an active committee member of the International Neuromodulation Society (INS), the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA), the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) and the North American Neuromodulation Society (NANS).
He specializes in advanced interventional techniques including neuromodulation with Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) stimulation, peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS), field stimulation, craniofacial stimulation and intrathecal drug delivery systems (IDDS). In the laboratory, his overlapping research investigations are aimed at discovering the mechanisms of action involved in pain relief with electrical stimulation, particularly for cancer pain conditions such as chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy.
Karla Sanchez, M.S., is a neuroscientist with a background in animal behavior, cell culture, and molecular techniques. Her expertise contributes to our in the study of signaling pathways involved in chronic pain and neurodegenerative disorders.
Anthony Palilla, M.S., is a biomedical engineer with a background in medical device innovation and commercialization. His expertise contributes to our development of new waveforms and electrical stimulation modalities.
Advisory Committee and Collaborators: Dr. Sivanesan’s research benefits from close collaboration with leaders in neuroscience, oncology, neurosurgery, and anesthesiology, including his scientific mentor Drs. Yun Guan.
Dr. Yun Guan, Ph.D., M.D., is a Professor of Anesthesiology and Neurosurgery, and an expert in neuropathic pain and neuromodulation. He has extensive experience using neuropathic pain models to study peripheral, spinal and supraspinal mechanisms of persistent pain with the goal and develop novel treatment.
Dr. Lei Zheng, MD, PhD, is a Clinician-Scientist, Associate Professor of Oncology and Surgery, and an expert in tumor immunology and the tumor microenvironment. He is affiliated with the Cancer Immunology Program as an NCI-funded laboratory investigator and as a clinical oncologist.
Dr. Michael Lim, MD, is a Professor of Neurosurgery, Oncology, Otolaryngology, and Radiation Oncology and Radiation Molecular Sciences, and he is Director of the Brain Tumor Immunotherapy Program. He is an NCI-funded laboratory investigator and neurosurgeon who studies the effect of chemotherapy on the immune system and chemo-efficacy.
Dr. Xinzhong Dong, PhD, is a Professor of Neuroscience, Neurosurgery, and Dermatology, and a HHMI Investigator that is an expert in the cellular and molecular mechanisms of different types of somatosensation, including pain.
Dr. Allan Bezberg, MD, is a Professor of Neurosurgery, Director of the Peripheral Nerve Center, and co-Director of the Neurosurgery Pain Research Institute.
